Deleting Data from your Developer Sandbox Environment

Since we launched the Sandbox dev environment over a year ago, a frequent feature request has been the ability to delete the data in a given QuickBooks Online Sandbox company.

A couple of months ago, in response to this feedback, we added this feature to the QuickBooks Sandbox. I wanted to take this opportunity to recap this feature.

Deleting Data

You can delete the data for a sandbox via the Manage Sandboxes page. To get to the Manage Sandboxes page after you have logged in, click either the Tools dropdown menu or the dropdown arrow next to your name and choose Sandbox.

The Manage Sandboxes page displays. Next, click the dropdown arrow next to Go to company for the target sandbox, then click Delete all data.

Sandbox-Purge

Be aware that this action deletes all data objects for the target company, including those originally supplied when the sandbox is first created as well as all objects subsequently created via the UI or via the QuickBooks Online API.

You can learn more about Sandbox environment here.
